SpicyIP Tidbit: No arguments in Roche-Natco


The Roche-Natco matter which came up for arguments before the Delhi High Court has been posted to May 10, 2010. No arguments were heard today.

This is by way of a quick update on the more detailed backstory we had reported yesterday.

In the interim, for those of you who are wondering whatever happened to that compulsory license application filed by Natco for Roche’s Tarceva, here’s what was reported on SpicyIP in September 2008: Natco appears to have withdrawn their application from the Patent Office for what would have otherwise been India’s first Doha-style compulsory license, apparently from a fear that it would lose on merits.
